The most fun podcast about the greatest band in the world.
Episode 40 – Feral
Rejoice, for it is a new year, and the 10th anniversary of the most mysterious, controversial, and misunderstood Radiohead album! We trudge through the many interesting takes on what makes the King of Limbs great and what makes it...not great? We also take on the ever-growing newspile including some nostalgic auction items, Jonny’s upcoming film scores, and Thom’s eclectic playlists. Plus we play a new game, Thom Tweets or Boomer Facebook posts!
Episode 39 – Life in a Glasshouse
This incomparable year is finally coming to an end, and we take a wary look back at it as we sift through the ever-growing newspile and talk about our favorite music of 2020. We chat about Thom’s new collab with his old buddies Burial and Four Tet, Jonny's growing collection of awards, Ed’s In Isolation videos, and even more Radiohead covers. And hey, where’s the Kid Amnesiac reissue?! Maybe it'll come bundled with the vaccine and we'll finally be able to go to Thom's and EOB's postponed concerts. Happy Holidays, everyone!
Episode 38 – Kid A
We’re back to celebrate the 20th anniversary of everyone’s favorite turn of the millenium masterpiece: Kid A! We scour through countless articles with takes both hot and cold about Radiohead’s fourth record and dive deep into Steven Hyden’s excellent new book, THIS ISN'T HAPPENING: RADIOHEAD'S "KID A" AND THE BEGINNING OF THE 21ST CENTURY. Along the way we give some recommendations on things to watch and listen to that’ll soothe your quarantined soul, introduce a new segment where we discuss new covers of Radiohead songs, marvel at Ed's new guitar toy, and discover the nefarious reason Colin hasn’t put out a solo record. Oh and also please wear a mask and VOTE!
Episode 37 – Long Time Coming
We’ve crawled out of our quarantine holes to bring you the Ed-centric episode you’ve all been waiting for! Ed released his very first solo album, Earth, and we gave it half a dozen spins so we can tell you which songs are summer anthems and which songs are ethereal stoner jams. We also dig through all of Ed’s recent interviews for all the juicy tidbits like how Ed and Thom met and who’s the “band mum”. Plus, our quarantine music, tv, and film recommendations, some more surprising Radiohead covers, the meaning of “cottagecore”, and much speculation about the probable Kid A/Amnesiac anniversary reissue.
Episode 36 – Everything In Its Right Place
Our first episode of the year is here and there is much to talk about! Radiohead has opened the doors to their very own Public Library filled to the brim with exciting treasures. We dig through puzzling webcasts of yesteryear, a plethora of fantastic concert videos and tv appearances, wild stories in newsletters from the 90s, and never before seen artwork. We also had a great time vibing with Ed at one of his first solo shows in NYC! Plus, we discuss Stanley Donwood’s graphic novel release, Thom’s upcoming tour, and a film that contains a surprising Radiohead song.
Episode 35 – A Reminder
It’s the holiday season and we have a special gift for you: a jam-packed episode where we look back at the 2010s and reminisce on all the good times, the bad times, and the meme times. Remember how you felt when you first saw Thom dancing in that bowler hat? Remember listening to King of Limbs for the first time? Remember the excitement to the lead-up of A Moon Shaped Pool? Also, we chat about Ed (or EOB) and his lengthy single, more intriguing Thom interviews, a mysterious package that Kristina received via air mail, and of course our favorite music of this year and our predictions for Radiohead’s 2020. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
